Life and Other Inconveniences
Special thanks to Berkley for providing our copy of Life and Other Inconveniences by Kristan Higgins in exchange for an honest & fair review.
Oh, I really love this book! Life and Other Inconveniences by Kristan Higgins takes on a lot. Truthfully, It's a coming home story of sorts. Reluctantly, Emma returns home after her grandmother tells her she is dying. With her teenage daughter & grandfather in tow, we see if forgiveness is in Emma's heart. This story centers around family, forgiveness & moving forward despite what life throws your way.
Why did I wait so long to read Kristan Higgins?
Reading the summary, I'm afraid this may be sad lady fiction. Life and Other Inconveniences contains lots of loss. Likely due to Higgin's exquisite writing, the story never feels too heavy for me. For that, I am thankful. While this is a longer book for me, it covers a lot of ground. Readers are treated to a multi-generational female trio & all the details & backstory are warranted and welcome.
I am Really Into This book! Honestly, I'm grateful for this story. Higgins really touches on the importance of understanding someone's past to really understand his/her present-day decisions. For me, this book has it all. Read Life and Other Inconveniences by Kristan Higgins if you're looking for a feel-good, heartwarming & emotionally fulfilling read. Content warning for some discussion of suicide.
If you're in the mood for a feel-good family story, check out Arthur Truluv.
